One of the best browser RPGS you will ever play and never heard about!

A few years ago a young developer known by his Internet name Pseudowolf uploaded a browser  RPG to the free gaming site Kongregate.

 

This RPG is so good you won't believe it was made by a single individual  (deep world/story, deep combat mechanics with intriguing elements, numerous enemy types and attacks ,composed music, epic boss battles, awesome loot a few secret areas and between 20-40 hours of gameplay) .

 

Unfortunately he never finished all but the first 3 chapters. For anyone who loves turn based classic RPGs like the first Final fantasies and can look past the graphics , you MUST! play this game. I promise you that after you get into the story you will be surprised by how good this game is:

 

chapter one (a prologue that explain the rules of the game):

chapter 2

chapter 3:

As I recall you can transfer saves between chapters to transfer the loot.

Having played the **** outta them when they came out, Chapter 1 and 2 aren't really fully developed games in of themselves and are mostly a very long time-sink into a pretty ok story and some really basic JRPG-esque Attack/Magic/Item/Run mechanics that gradually becomes more complex but is still fairly low level.  

Chapter 3 is mostly a lengthy reasonably quality fan made game, with pretty standard mechanics, fun goofy references and not terrible writing, but mechanically it's still stock standard JRPG with positioning, elemental tables, mana and strength values.

 

It's pretty good, but it's still just a take on what Suikoden II hit a home run with 20 years ago done in a flash engine with a goofy quality plot.  And it's not really difficult or lose-able at all, certainly no great leap forward in RPG game mechanics. 

 

It's pretty good by the standards of free flash games and the Kongregate/Armor games Flash scene between ~2008 and 2010ish I guess. Chapter 3 arguably takes the title of "best Flash RPGs made" in the golden era of Kongregate development alongside Enchanted Cave/Sonny/Epic Battle Fantasy/RPG shooter Starwish.  

 

Which hit a wall when flash developers figured out that "instead of making ad supported Flash games for the love of it, you can make Flash MMOs with the free to play formula and actually make some revenue," and both Kongregate and  a massive part of the development community got on that wagon because it brings in several times as much revenue.

IMO this game is very good and it is more story and dialogue oriented than the Epic final fantasy series which is more combat based and quite good by itself...

 

The first two chapters are preparing you for the full and more open third part.

 

And the mechanics aren't that low level ,there are between 7 to 8 elements ,each one is good/weak against others. You need to react during attacks and defends and you can master item abilities so you can use them without the item. I think that It is deeper than the Stick of truth combat system which was also very  fun to  play with.

 

I think Pseduwolf just got older and didn't have enough time to finish the series. He hasn't made any MMO/card game lately.
